Gold, who played Cameron's TV sister on
the ABC sitcom Growing Pains, addressed his controversial
comments during the show.
During an appearance on CNN's Piers
Morgan Tonight, Cameron told host Piers Morgan that being gay is
“detrimental, and ultimately destructive” and that he would not
be supportive if one of his six sons told him he was gay.
According to The
New York Daily News, Gold told attendees that Cameron “had
spoken his mind,” then added, “I want my voice of love and
support to be louder. There's nothing wrong with being gay.”
The mention of Cameron's name set off a
loud round of boos from the audience.
Co-presenter Carson Kressley cheered
Gold. “Go, Tracey!” he said, then added, “Just for the record,
I don't like Kirk Cameron's hair.”
